See What You've Accomplished in Peru
Posted on: Monday, November 22, 2010
Last week, I showed you what you have made possible in Iraq through a message from Yanar Mohammed, the leader of the Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq, our sister organization in Baghdad. Today, I'm thrilled to show you how much you've accomplished in Peru!
Thank you, as always, for making MADRE's work on behalf of women and families possible,
|Tarcila Rivera Zea - CHIRAPAQ (The Center for Indigenous Peoples' Cultures of Peru)|
In 2010, you made it possible for Tarcila and CHIRAPAQ to give Indigenous women a voice and newfound power.
Through CHIRAPAQ's radio program, Voices for Justice, you've given Indigenous women the chance to raise their voices in a country where they are often silenced. The radio program allows women to speak freely on the air about charged issues like climate change, domestic violence and women's political participation. It also gives them valuable technical skills in broadcast and media.
And, you've helped CHIRAPAQ bring the perspective of Indigenous Peoples of Peru to key UN conferences, making sure their voices are heard not only in Peru, but all over the world. Thank you!
